Three weekends, Three regattas

Posted in Dragon Boat, Outrigger, Travel Tagged , , , ,

Didn’t get a chance to write about each race individually, like I was hoping to as it seemed like I finished one race, came home, unpacked, laundry, packed and left again. So here is a breakdown of each race that I was just at.

1st of the three regatta’s was Penticton a small but booming town in the interior of BC. The weather was hot yet manageable, two of our teams from the club took part in this festival this year. By the time the afternoon heats on Saturday were happening the wind picked up so much that they had to cancel the afternoon races. Which sucked as we were just lined up to head out on the water but understanding safety and whatnot, though it was nice to head back to the hotel and relax in the pool before our team dinner that night.

Both teams kept improving their times over the weekend and both got into two different medal divisions which was awesome, though my team missed getting a bronze by ONE second. Oh well, there is always next year :) Continue reading »

Summer Road Trip Recap

Posted in Holidays, Photography, Travel Tagged , , , ,

Hey PGN readers, hope you are all having a great July/summer so far! It has been a crazy last few months and on June 28, I got a chance to take a mini getaway by visiting my best friend and her husband for a few days and taken in some fireworks. Even though I did not really like the temperature (it was anywhere between 102’F to 118’F) the trip is what I need. My friends do know how to put on a great Canada Day (July 1st) and Independence Day (July 4th) parties.

On the way home my 1st flight was an hour late, which cut into my 90-minute layover. By the time I got to my gate for my 2nd flight, I missed my flight by 5 minutes. Thanks to the person at the airline, I was able to fly into Seattle that same night and got picked up (Thanks Mom). By the time it was over, I was very happy to be in my own bed.

Now for some pictures
